Andy and I spent Fourth of July weekend in the country with our friends Ben and Tom at their house in Sullivan County. We took the train to Suffern via Secaucus -- where the train station exhibited this, uh, unusual public art -- where Tom was waiting to drive us to Barryville.

The holiday's official activity centered on attending a party in Dingman's Ferry that two theater queens have been throwing for 40 years. The theme this year was "Mad Men." See Ben, Tom, and Andy in their appropriate attire. Plus, new Subaru.
